Friday Nights at the de Young | Fall 2018

One of San Francisco’s most celebrated after-hours museum events returns for a fall season of 2018.

These nine Friday Nights feature free admission to the main-level galleries highlighted by a reinterpretation of contemporary art in their permanent collection and new acquisitions called Specters of Disruption. In addition, Friday Nights will offer reduced-price tickets of $14 to the exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions from 6–8:30 pm.

Through social-media moments and in-person dialogue, visitors can engage and commune with the art and with one another in a warm and welcoming setting. Enjoy specialty drinks and mocktails, coffees, teas, and snacks. Bring your friends. Strike a pose at the selfie wall. Listen to music. Make art. Activities take place from 6–8:30 pm.

Schedule | Friday, October 4, 2013

  • 6:30 – 8:30 pm: Performance: Third Annual Some Thing Tiara Sensation Pageant by Club SOME Thing – Wilsey Court
    SOME Thing is a weekly party that seeks to explore, open, and refine drag performance using new modalities and forms, including dance, burlesque, lip synch, live singing, female impersonation, and the general creation of different personas—regardless of gender. The contestants will use their talents to develop a look and a performance of up to seven minutes each that will woo the audience and persuade the judges to crown one of them the next Tiara Sensation.
    The annual Tiara Sensation Pageant is a larger version of the weekly event that has been held at the Stud Bar since 2008. In hosting this event at the de Young Museum this year, SOME Thing aims to reach a different audience, and produce the same exciting results as previous partnered events. This may be the most exciting collaboration yet.
  • 7-8 pm: Elizabeth Taylor in The VIPs – Presentation: Bulgari in the Movies, by Brad Rosenstein, Independent Curator and Scholar – Koret Auditorium
    Bulgari has been associated with Hollywood glamour since the silent film era, and stars including Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, and Julianne Moore have worn Bulgari’s luxurious gems both on and off the screen. Join a glittering evening of La Dolce Vita style as independent scholar Brad Rosenstein treats us to a banquet of shimmering images and film clips that chart the unique connections between this one-of-a-kind jeweler, celebrity, and the magic of the movies.
  • 1-8:30 pm: Exhibition: Artifice, by the Urbanauts, Sean Orlando and Matthew Passmore – Kimball Education Gallery
    The Urbanauts—Sean Orlando and Matthew Passmore (Rebar)——are back at the deYoung Museum for the final phase of their Artist Fellows project: Artifice
